The Blessing Stones Art Project
The Blessing Stones mezuzahs, are original, unique and extraordinary Judaica art items designed by Anat Perl.
The idea behind the “Blessing Stone” Art Project was to create art that is identified with Israel. The Mezuzah is a clear symbol of the Jewish and Israeli home so the mezuzah was chosen to be represented in the project.
In the Jewish tradition, the Mezuzah is hung on the right-side doorframeat the entrance to each door in the house and the rolled-up parchment placed inside it. The mezuzah protects the house and the people in it. Some refer to the Mezuzah additional features such a guard against potential harm and danger, hence the letters that appear on the mezuzah are an acronym for the words: Doors Guard of Israel. The word “God” appears in the mezuzah is an acronym for these words.
Over the centuries, the mezuzah has won a variety of styles, designs and materials, and has become one of the most common items of Jewish art – Judaica. Because of that, Anat decided to turn the mezuzah into a unique art product.
A mezuzah is the first thing people see when they enter a house and it is a blessing to all who enter its doorstep. The presence of a Blessing Stones mezuzah on the door frame create an elegant welcoming.
The base material chosen to begin with was Jerusalem stone, inspired by the Western Wall in Jerusalem and various stones that characterize the Land of Israel, strengthens the product’s connection to Israel. The Qumran Stone Mezuzah was created. The design on natural stone, handmade one by one, making it a one-of-a-kind piece of art.
The unique and unusual combination of raw stone, brass coated with gold, silver, rhodium and handmade glass, create a prestigious look.
The artist applies high quality and durable materials that remain in optimal condition for many years both indoors and outdoors. they aim to be timeless pieces created to last for generations.
The Blessing Stones mezuzahs have special design that allows the written blessing to be seen. The metal ornaments on the mezuzah’s cover are Jewish and Israeli symbols that reflect a rich tradition.
Beyond the use as its traditional function, hang on the door frame, the Blessing Stones mezuzahs can be placed on a special stand (in a separate order) in the living room table or in a vitrine as a sculpture. The mezuzah can also be hung on the foyer wall of the house.
Over time, a special series of concrete mezuzahs was created – The Gamla concrete Mezuzah. This raw material is particularly interesting and allows to create special models, textures and colors. Its combination with pure gold, silver and rhodium, gives it an interesting contrast and unconventional look. The Concrete mezuzahs are processed by hand, one by one, using unique technique and natural pigments.
Each item of the “Blessing Stones” mezuzahs is exclusive and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
Blessing Stones mezuzahs fill your home with a special artistic value and a piece of the Land of Israel.
